Everyday 18,000 children die of starvation. I thought Burnsville & the Burbs could do something to help! Join me on November 5th from 6:00pm - 7:30pm for a packing session.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and we ship the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.
**Please note: You do not have to be religious or Christian to participate**
Age Requirements: Message me if you plan to bring your child
Jewelry Policy: Jewelry and other accessories present the potential for foreign objects to accidentally fall into our lifesaving meals. Due to FDA requirements, FMSC volunteers will need to remove all jewelry and/or accessories before packing. Foreign objects in food can cause choking, tooth-breakage, and other problems. FMSC does not have a screening device like a metal detector or an x-ray machine to detect possible contamination of our finished product.
- No jewelry is permitted in the packing room, labeling areas, Warehouse Crew Area or when inspecting raw ingredients.
- Jewelry includes earrings, watches, rings, necklaces, pins, brooches, etc.
- Wedding bands are permitted, however if your band has a stone you will be required to wear a glove.
- Medical alert bracelets/necklaces may be worn.
**There is no place to store your jewelry onsite**
Food Allergies? See the FMSC website to determine whether you should pack food based on the ingredients.
Hope to see you there!
